GOVEROTRAGEOUS: Manhattan Community Access Corp is not a “state actor”?

Manhattan Community Access Corp. v. Halleck

The court held that Manhattan Community Access Corp., the private nonprofit corporation runs public access television channels in Manhattan, is not a “state actor” and is therefore not subject to the First Amendment. Libertarians will agree that the private property rights of the corporation overrule any standards mandated by the government.

A private nonprofit corporation has private property rights?

As both a big L and little L libertarian, I am not sure if I agree with that.
